If rumors are to be believed, Xiaomi Mi 6 will be powered by the recently launched Snapdragon 835 processor during the CES 2017. Moreover, the Mi 6 shattered all records and pegged at 210,329 points on AnTuTu as per the information sourced from Weibo.
A Weibo user based in China has disclosed that he has exclusive access to a screenshot, which showcases the AnTuTu benchmark score for the upcoming Mi 6. However, the phone turns out to be a prototype model shared by his friend.
Expected to look smaller than Mi Note 2, Xiaomi is gearing up to officially launch the smartphone on February 6 officially. According to industry analysts, the sales will initially start in China from March onwards.
Xiaomi Mi 6 has broken the records set by iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 3T
According to Weibo listing, the Xiaomi Mi 6 even before the official launch is dubbed as the king of AnTuTu. The score of 210,329 has broken the previous record set by the iPhone 7 Plus with Apple A10 processor at 183,106. If the rumored AnTuTu turns out to be true, you can expect power packed performance from Mi 6 and the recently launched Snapdragon 835 processor.
Even the AnTuTu score of OnePlus 3T powered by the Snapdragon 821 processor was pegged at 163,578. The score is lower than iPhone 7 Plus and way backward than the Mi 6.
Although the benchmark results never reveal the complete story of any smartphone, it looks like Snapdragon 835 will be a huge enhancement when compared to the previous counterpart. When it comes to performance, Qualcomm has significantly improved the manufacturing process in such a way that the new chip substantially reduces the power consumption.
Xiaomi Mi 6 specifications
On the specifications front, the Xiaomi Mi 6 will feature a 5.15-inch QHD IPS Corning Gorilla Glass 4 display with a pixel density of 570PPI. Under the hood, the Mi 6 will be equipped with Snapdragon 835 processor, Adreno 540 graphics, 4GB/6GB RAM, 64GB/128GB non-expandable internal storage loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. We expect the phone to ship with Nougat since Marshmallow is very much out-dated.
While the rear camera will offer a dual 12MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture, the front-facing snapper will bear a 4MP sensor alongside f/2.0 aperture. We don’t have any information about the battery capacity, but the Mi 6 provides support for fast charging via USB Type-C port.
We expect the Xiaomi Mi 6 to launch in China on February 6. Regarding availability in India, you can expect the handset to launch during Q3 2017.
